Kellenberger 100

Kellenberger 100

The strength, diversity and technical expertise of member companies in the Hardinge Grinding Group has resulted in Group member Kellenberger creating a highly innovative new machine concept – Kellenberger 100 – that will be debuted at the forthcoming EMO trade fair.

Kellenberger and other Group members – Voumard, Hauser, Tschudin and Usach -are all represented in the UK by Leicester based Jones & Shipman who in their own right offer an extensive range of universal and cylindrical grinders.

The Kellenberger 100 series platform sees the high-performance, economical grinder segment in the Group’s portfolio being completely overhauled to make it fit for future

manufacturing demands. Based on a modular design, it incorporates key elements of Kellenberger’s Vista and Vita model ranges, the Jones & Shipman Ultramat CNC and Ultragrind 1000 and the Tschudin T25, aspects of which have been integrated into the new range. 

The challenge presented to the Kellenberger engineers in St. Gallen, Switzerland, was to develop a platform on which diverse machine concepts could be realised totally in line with customer budgets and performance expectations. In effect, offering the most diverse range of configurations to achieve the widest range of grinding operations at a highly competitive price.

In terms of functionality the new 100 platform far exceeds the capabilities of many existing grinding machines. Because of its modular configuration, assembly of 100 series machines is simplified making it possible to optimize manufacturing costs for the machine and ensure an excellent price/performance ratio for the purchaser.  Numerous ‘standard’ options can put the customer’s finishing touches on each individual machine.

The user-friendly and ergonomic design of the Kellenberger 100 machines also features a new, simple operator guidance system with an intuitive touchscreen panel. The machines are equipped with the latest Fanuc 31i CNC controls with 19″ touchscreen and a newly designed cycle programming or workpiece-related graphic programming is an option. 

Other features include an innovative, collision-free, compact tandem wheelhead, the ability to fit larger grinding wheel diameters for internal grinding and a choice of ten wheelhead variations for optimum layout of the machine dictated by the components to be processed.

There is also increased drive power at the grinding wheel, a newly designed Z guideway and a C axis with direct drive for high precision, non-circular grinding.

Finally, there is a service-friendly design permitting faster maintenance and service operations with good access to components requiring frequent attention.

The machine featured at EMO will be the 1000mm between centres variant, the other option being a 600mm unit.
